Issue Details

I am using the Multisim Automation API (COM Interface) or the LabVIEW Multisim Connectivity Toolkit. Before I disconnect from the Multisim server, I generate a Bill of Materials (BOM) and the application crashes.

What can I do to avoid this?

Solution

This issue is reported in Multisim 12.0.
The Circuit Design Suite 12.0.0.1 Update provides a fix for this issue.

  • Run Update Service to check for the update and install it.

Additional Information

If you don't have immediate access to the update patch you may prevent the crash by not disconnecting after creating the BOM.
Perform other operations before disconnecting.
